Commonly known as the River of Gold which starts from the remote countryside, a challenging rafting class the Sun Kosi River rafting is one of the best rafting tours and longest river trip in Nepal. The Sun Koshi offers the opportunity to see a special part the country that is rarely seen within Nepal. Dolalghat the starting point of rafting tour is three hours drive from Kathmandu and that ends at Chatra. The volume of water increases in the Sun Koshi considerably as it combines with seven big tributaries to become a major river. It offers fun class II-III rapids that allow time to learn rafting skills and teamwork needed for farther challenging rapids to come. Then from the third day, the whitewater builds into great, thundering class III-IV+ rapids.
Furthermore, the Sun Koshi rafting presents a varied and changing landscape from terraced farmland to steep gorges and then to sub-tropical jungles. In each camping, we camp on a large, sandy river bank in close contact with village and people along with the rewarding experience of sights of wildlife. The final part of the river may be the most dramatic – 10kms of nearly non-stop class IV rapids through Jungle, and climaxing with the dipper rapid.
